This mod redesigns the surroundings of Skingrad. It adds a small river as well as lots of cliffs and in general, the vegetation gets densified and more detailed. In addition to the landscape improvements, Skingrad Outskirts adds new farms, and also implements ruins of farms, abandoned by their owners for unknown reasons and reconquered by nature.

Unique Landscapes (short: UL) is based on the vision of a diversified and beautiful Cyrodiil. Imagine a world where exploring not only means to find new enemies and treasures but to enjoy gorgeous landscapes, a world where every step could lead to a new and unique visual experience. That is the Cyrodiil UL is working on.

To achieve a goal that huge, the UL project consists of multiple single mods. Each mod modifies a part of Cyrodiil, following a single theme. Usually UL mods get developed completely independently from each other. This way each modder has a maximum of freedom to work on his or her vision, so every UL mod gets its own style and contributes to the diversification of Cyrodiil.

Compatibility Information

Please visit the Unique Landscapes Compatibility Patches page for a list of known and patched conflicts.

All UL mods are compatible with each other. However, there is one issue arising from the limitations of the game's graphic engine: Landscape LOD may overlap for different mods.
To make the landscape look the same in the distance as it does up close, you need to download two tools. Use the Landscape LOD Generator TES4LL to create distant ground, and use TES4LODGen to create distant objects. These tools create entirely different things so there is no conflict between them, and both should be run after you have sorted your load order using BOSS. The results will be unique to your personal game, not a generic combination of only the most popular mods.


Oblivion with the official patch version 1.2.406 is required.

da mage created the Mine Rails resource.
Magician created the Chicken Coop resource.
Mr_Siika created the Bloomery resource.
Mr_Siika, the "NPCs With Jobs" Team, Ssenkrad and CorePc created the Chickens & Pigs resources.
